CMLL GdR on FSE #24

taped 01/27, aired 02/04

This was also replayed on FSE. It’s a little bit more interesting, because there’s a Loco Max/Metro feud teased here that never went anywhere. Was it just going to be just another Loco Max hair drop, or might have they killed off the Metro mask instead of letting it fade away?

When you look back at it, that whole sponsorship deal makes no sense. Why would you pay to put your name on a midcard guy who doesn’t particularly do anything? Why switch people under the mask, making it obvious that you made a change, without actually changing how the guy is used? I don’t see the point of any of this effort, except to get me to type all of this.

I think this was like the 4th straight Mistico main event I had seen at this point in a short time period, doing the standard Mistico match. No one’s going to look good like that – the better they have their match down, the worse off, really.

TripleMania XV: records

I’m going to do a full preview of TripleMania Friday (I think), but inspired by some WrestleMania coverage, I did some research and worked up some stats on everyone who’s on the card right now.

Pro Wrestling History was a huge help for this. I used their card listings (which, come to think of it, we should have on one of these sites around here), and counted all the individual shows in years where multiple TripleManias were held.

1) Alfa, Cassandro, Fabi Apache, Mini Abismo Negro vs Cinthia Moreno, Octagoncito, Oriental, Pimpinela Escarlata

* This is Alfa’s first TripleMania.
* Cassandro is 0-0-1, having appeared last year in a match with no finish
* Fabi is 0-3, including losing two prior Relevos AAA matches at TM12 and 14.
* Mini Abismo is 0-6-1

* Cinthia Moreno is 1-0, with her only appearance in a TM12’s Relevos AAA opener
* I believe this Octagoncito is 6-0, and the prior is 3-0-1; I’m figuring everything starting with TripleMania V is the newer one.
* Oriental is 1-0-1, but hasn’t been on a TripleMania since 2002.
* Pimpi is 3-2-1

2) Cuervo & Ozz vs Crazy Boy & Joe Lider [AAA TAG]

* Cuervo & Ozz made their TripleMania debuts last year in the no-contest Atomico title match, under those names
* As Pathfinder, Ozz was 2-0, but had last appeared on TripleMania 8 from Japan.
* Crazy Boy & Joe Lider are making the TripleMania in-ring debuts

3) Juventud Guerrera vs Fuerza Guerrera [street]

* Juvi is 4-2-1 at TripleMania events.
* Fuerza is one of two to wrestle at the first TripleMania and on this show
** Martha Villalobos, Vicky Carranza, Lola Gonzalez, Octagon, and Konnan also appeared at the first TripleMania and are on the roster, but not wrestling for this show. Abismo Negro wrestled as Winners on that show, and may yet wrestle on this one.
* Fuerza has a 3-7 record, including losing the Mexican Tag belts to the Aguayos in 1998.
* As a team, Juvi and Fuerza are 2-0.

4) El Apache & Super Fly vs Laredo Kid & Super Calo [losers advance, pi]
5) Super Calo or Gran Apache vs Laredo Kid or Super Fly [mask, hair]
* Gran Apache is 3-2 at TripleMania, with a win last year.
* Both Super Fly and Laredo Kid debuted on TripleMania in last year’s Mexican Atomicos match.
* Super Calo is the other TripleMania I hold over. He teamed with Winners and Salsero to beat May Flowers, Rudy Reyna and Baby Sharon. Calo is 7-2, including winning Angel Mortal and Winners’s mask in separate 1995 shows. He last wrestled on the 2003 TripleMania show.

Over the history of TripleMania, 9 men have lost their masks:

Mascara Ano 2000, to Perro Aguayo at TM1
Angel Mortal, to Super Calo at TM3 Part A (Orizaba)
Payasito Rojo, loser of a mini cage match at TM3 Part A (Orizaba)
Marabunta, to Winners at TM3 Part B (Tonala)
Winners, to Super Calo at TM3 Part C (Madero)
Halcon Dorado Jr., loser of a cage match at TM4 Part C (Madero)
La Calaca, loser of a cage match at TMV Part B (Toreo)
Maniaco, loser of a cage match at TMX Part B (Madero)
Muerte Cibernetico, TO La Parka Jr. at TMXIV (Toreo)

6) Alebrije, Elegido, Super Porky vs Alan Stone, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido

* Alebrije is 4-2
* Elegido and Porky are making their TripleMania debuts. Brazo de Plata debuted in AAA in a non-wrestling capacity last year.
* Alan Stone and Zumdido debuted in a loss last year.
* Scorpio Jr. is 1-2 at TripleMania. Before last year, Scorpio had last appeared in 1995.

7) ?, La Parka Jr., Latin Lover, Zorro vs ?, Head Hunter I, Ron Killings, Sabu

* La Parka Jr. is 6-0 at TripleMania, having picked up Muerte’s mask and Cibernetico’s hair along the way.
* Latin Lover is 11-4. He’s had more matches than TripleManias, thanks to years iwth multiple shows.
* Zorro is 3-2, with both his losses coming in title matches.
* Head Hunter I is 0-1, previously teaming with his brother.
* Ron Killings and Sabu are making their TripleMania debuts

8) Charly Manson, Chessman, Cibernetico vs Kenzo Suzuki, Mesias, X-Pac [cage, hair]

* Charly picked up his first win at a TripleMania last year. He’s 1-3 overall.
* Chessman is 0-3-1 at TripleManias
* Cibernetico is 3-9 all time.

* Kenzo and Waltman are making their TripleMania debuts.

07/11: Coliseo, Guadalajara, IWRG, Irapuato

CMLL

CMLL (TUE) 07/10 Arena Coliseo [cmll, ova]
1) Rayo Tapatio II & Trueno b Caligula & Vaquero
2) Bam Bam, Bracito de Oro, Celestial b Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Damian, Pequeno Halloween
3) Arkangel, Hooligan, Nitro b Fabian el Gitano, Flash, Tony Rivera
4) La Mascara, Maximo, Volador Jr. b Satanico, Texano Jr., Virus
5) Dos Caras Jr., Heavy Metal, Rey Bucanero DQ Atlantis, Sangre Azteca, Universo 2000

Trueno replaced Rayo Tapaito I in the opener. No word if refunds were offered. That joke’s a lot funnier if Dos didn’t replace Negro in the main event (but still.) Universo ended up yanking Dos’ mask. No details on the minis match.

CMLL (TUE) 07/10 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Estrella de Jalisco b Destroyer
2) Guero Loco b Evola
3) Nuba Roja b Exterminador
4) Metatron b Danger (Guadalajara)
5) Metalik b Infierno
6) Malefico & Mascara Magica b El Gallo & Tigre Blanco
7) Blue Panther & Sagrado b El Egipico & Terrible
8) Marco Corelone b Ultimo Guerrero

In third fall of the main event, Ultimo pulled the ref in the path of a Marco Corelone flying clothesline. With the ref out, Ultimo whipped Marco into the corner, and went for his corner headstand sit – except Marco fouled him on the way down. Ref recovered just in time to count three.

Egipico replaced Lizmark. Panther gave Terrible the armbar again.

Magica fouled el Gallo, and Tiger Blanco was left alone and pinned.

CMLL

IWRG (SUN) 07/08 Arena Naucalpan [IWRG]
1) Samba b Vampiro Metalico
2) Macho II & Rockero del Diablo b Espacial & Halcon Salvaje
3) Fantasma de la Opera, Kai, Yamato b Coco Rojo, Coco Verde, Cocolores
4) 911, AK47, Fierro b Cyborg, Oficial, Xibalva
5) Cerebro Negro, Electroshock, Hijo de Anibal b Enfermero Jr., Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr.

IWRG results from IWRG’s site, how about that. Rudo referee was helping the winning team in the tercera. The main event built the second generation Anibal vs Dinamatias feud.

AAA (MON) 07/09 Gimnasio Municipal Irapuato [El Sol de Irapuato]
1) La Parkita & Octagoncito b Mini Abismo Negro & Mini Histeria
2) Apocalipis (NWG) & Makabre b Roberto Paz Jr. & Shyru Dragon
3) Maquina Infernal L Billy Boy, Alan, Laredo Kid, Bobby Lee Jr., Prisionero 13 [mask, cage]
4) Billy Boy & La Park Jr. DQ Head Hunter I, Kenzo Suzuki, Mesias

Cibernetico missed the main event due to injuries – selling stuff of TV, maybe. Zorro was also supposed to wrestle, but they wouldn’t let him in the ring with his neck vice. Mesias ended up fouling Parka anyway.

Maquina Infernal is Isaac Rene Valadez, from Leon. Billy unmasked him in the finals of the cage match.

There’s a Mascarita Sagrada 2000 to CMLL rumor floating.

Luchas 2000 Espacial #22 is on the stars of UWA.

CMLL GdR on FSE #20

taped 12/17/06, aired 12/24/07

This was a disappointing La Nazi match. Okay, I know that doesn’t actually make any sense, but maybe saying it was disappointedly worked makes more sense. La Nazi has been at her best when she’s the monster bully, shoving the smaller tecnicas around. For whatever reason, and I’m guessing it was Lady Apache’s called, La Nazi worked this match like any other bumbling ruda, and that exposed her weaknesses. Hiroka’s interference not being caught was hilariously bad.

Also disappointing, more so actually, was Takemura in the trios match. He looked like a guy who had lost his passion for this, like a shell of what he was previously. I haven’t seen his Japan stuff at all, so I’ve got no clue if this happened back when he got dropped by NJPW, or if the following indy travels broke him, but this was a different man than the guy I enjoyed in ’01 and ’02. Maybe I’m reading way too much into one match, but it was one nothing match.

Sahori looked so much better in her workout gear than normal. She should totally throw out all her gear and figure out something else, because it’s doing her a disservice. Sometimes, the ‘hot’ outfits these women wear turn unflattering – Cinthia Moreno has this problem a lot, I think. But that’s me

My DVD doesn’t include the last show of the year, so no CMLL Women’s Title match recap, and I’m actually little disappointed about it. I’m sure it’d just be an angry rant at the end, but I still went thru the build up, would’ve liked to see it thru regardless. But I think I can move on.

Also, I’ve just noticed my January DVD has a defect on it, and the two first two episodes are irretrievable. Judging from the listings, it’s unremarkable winter stuff, so I’ll live.

CMLL GdR on FSE #19

taped 12/10/06, aired 12/17/07

Part two of the Hiroka/Lady Apache bit, which actually is more of a La Nazi/Dark Angel thing. I guess they wanted to set up the team of La Nazi and Amapola strong (for the two weeks it’d last) and give Nazi a big win before the title match, but they didn’t actually give a reason for it. I dunno.

Main event was Ohara randomly as a tecnico, Kenzo looking lost as a rudo and a messed up finish. So, yea, you can skip this one.

CMLL GdR on FSE #18

taped 12/03/06, aired 12/10/07

It’s weird – you could make a case that things in the Women’s Division switched from Dark Angel chasing the title to Lady Apache chasing the title somewhere between segment 1 and 2 of this show. The pre-match stuff pushed Dark Angel vs Hiroka, but the match was laid out to start the Apache program – it doesn’t get more straightforward than Lady Apache pinning the champ.

Main was in the move pose pause move mold.

4) Euforia, Nosferatu, Satanico b Felino, Leon Blanco, Tigre Blanco
5) Ephesto, Terrible, Texano Jr. b Dr. Wagner Jr., Rey Bucanero, Vampiro

Wagner worked as a tecnico, and Terrible yanked his mask for the win. In the semifinal, Satanico faked a foul, Felino argued with the ref to stop it from being called, and Satanico rolled him up for the win. Azazel pulled Mach I’s mask in their match.

CMLL (MON) 07/09 Arena Puebla [hugo999]
1) Mr. Rafaga & Siki Osama Jr. b Ares & Toro Bill Jr.

5) Cerebro Negro, Rayo de Jalisco Jr., Veneno DQ Hijo de Cien Caras, Mascara Ano 2000 Jr., Yamato

The old police are feuding with the new police. Rayo pulled Hijo de Cien Caras’ mask at the same time HdCC fouled him, and the ref only saw the final. Post match saw Hijo de Mascara Ano 2000 join the “fun”, and Rayo promised to bring re-enforcements next time.

5) Gran Hamada, Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. vs Antifaz, Hator, Monje Negro Jr.

AAA posted some interviews hype articles for TripleMania. Not a lot of new info them.
– Cibernetico, Mesias, Charly Manson and Chessman talk about their match. Mesias figures he’s fought in far more cage matches in Puerto Rico, so he’ll have the experience edge going into the match, but Chessman says his side have fought in more Cage Of Death matches so it goes there way. Charly says his side won’t be going in 100%, but they’ll have heart.
– Similar interview with the parajes incredible participants. Apache says he’s put up his hair more than 100 times. Calo reminds us of how victory over Winners at TripleMania III. I was wondering why they were bringing up Winners name during his match last week on TV, obviously that was it.
– background on Mexican Powers vs Secta

Things I have no idea about: La Oreja pretending random injury angles with Mistico and Latin Lover are real, members of music group Pequeños Musica challenging Mistico to a match for whatever reason. I think that’s part of a lucha libre show/concert they’re doing in August.

Magazines
Box Y Lucha #2826 has Wagner ripping Mistico’s mask.
GdR #95 has TripleMania.

Konnan on WOL

I’ve uploaded Konnan’s comments on this past weekend’s Wrestling Observer Live, cut down to the stuff dealing with Mexico and AAA. As always, I figure it’s best to get it first person and make your own judgments when possible. It’s 16 minutes of spliced bits.

07/08: Coliseo, Konnan, Monterrey, Merida

CMLL/seeing is believing

CMLL (SUN) 07/08 Arena Coliseo [Alvin @ el Martinete, Ovaciones, CMLL]
1) Rayo Tapatio I & Rayo Tapatio II b Caligula & Messala
2) Bam Bam, Pequeno Olimpico, Ultimo Dragoncito DQ Mr. Aguilita, Pequeno Damian 666, Pequeno Halloween
3) Leono, Sagrado, Tony Rivera b Eclipse, Misterioso II, Okumura
4) Mascara Ano 2000, Sangre Azteca, Ultimo Guerrero b Alex Koslov, Marco Corelone, Volador Jr.
5) Dos Caras Jr. b Universo 2000 [CMLL HEAVY]

Dos won clean. He actually tried for the press slam into a German suplex, but that wasn’t happening on Universo. He got a small package instead. The idea is the Heavyweight title is the missing piece to turn Dos from a top guy to a top guy people actually pay to see. That would be nice, but I see a couple problems here

– this is a Coliseo feud, taking place on FSLatin America in Mexico. I dunno ratings in Mexico, but it seems like only a fraction of the audience that watches the main show (much more accessible) would see this. If you really wanted to make this mean something, you do in Arena Mexico, you do it on the main TV show, and you do it on Friday so it makes all the lucha magazines this week. Unless they spoiled the finish to the magazines to get them to hype it, this won’t be covered till next week, right as they’re selling TripleMania coverage

– As sarcastically pointed out in the comments and assuming they follow up on this (and they should), who could Dos Jr. wrestle that would actually be interesting? Universo again? No. (though we’ll get some of that, and this match was said to be better than expected.) Lizmark Jr.? No (though we’ll surely get some of that.) Eclipse? (Gosh no.) Corelone’s a tecnico, thankfully.

There’s a big hole in Mexico where good heavyweights should be (though that problem seems to be global for wrestling.) They could always have Light Heavy type rudos wrestle Dos, but there doesn’t seem to be any obvious Step 2 to this plan.

In the minis match, Damian fouled Bam Bam. Usually challenges after the match, nothing agreed to. He got a small package instead. The show drew close to a sell out.

Some notes from Konnan on last night’s Wrestling Observer Live, as mentioned in the comments. Much of the show as Chris Benoit and other talk. Very little on TripleMania itself – they ran over a list of US guys expected in, and most of the rest of the AAA talk wasn’t event specific.

– The Planned US Expansion continues on…being planned. Usual bit about being an untapped market, drawing well for other promoters even who don’t have AAA’s sensibilities. They plan to have 4 US PPVs in ’08, which I took to mean Rey de Reyes/TripleMania/Verano de Escandalo/Guerra de Tiantes rather than them running shows in the US that air on PPV.

AAA plans on doing shows in the US in ’08. The guy who got them on the Warped Tour is going to be promoter for the US shows. The idea of the Warped Tour is just to get their name out there. AAA may end up creating a splinter promotion for the US shows, depending on regulation issues, but the same people (Konnan) would be in charge.

– Konnan talked highly of Dorian Roldan, making the transition from a college student who came to AAA shows and work concessions to a workaholic who has a hand in the storylines. Konnan said something like “now we have storylines, we used to just have a lot of run-ins”, which made me laugh out loud. It’s totally true.

– Konnan likes what they’re doing now – he cited the Air Force members by individual names and he likes the Hell Brothers as a group, but wants to continue improving. Production is emphasized, as always. (There’s more he said here, but I want to relisten to it to get it right before committing to it.)

Based on his comments during another part of the show, I think you’ll see AAA bring in some US indy guys/(gals?). He’d for sure bring in some TNA guys if they were freed from the their TNA contracts. Konnan is actually still under TNA contract for a year, but he figures as long as he doesn’t wrestle in the US, it’s not worth TNA’s time to fight him about it.

– Rikishi and Black Pearl are confirmed for coming in for TripleMania

– Abismo & Niebla were off TV due to rehab.

– Octagon showed up to a TV taping drunk, and Konnan took him off TV as punishment. That’s how we’ve ended up with Juvi/Fuerza.

– Konnan’s kidney surgery will not be until after TripleMania (and the Leon taping), assuming his donor matches him. He wanted to do it this week, but AAA asked for him to be around for TripleMania. He’s going to be in the hospital for three weeks, and then new a couple weeks after that to get in shape, but hopes to be in the ring soon after. (That would be – late August/September?)

Konnan figures the tecnicos will get a huge reaction when they finally get him to take a bump. I think the tecnicos will get a big reaction, but it’s more because he’s a star and he hasn’t taken a bump in a while. Konnan’s interfered a lot and the tencicos haven’t got anything back on them, but Konnan’s interference is always when all the rudos are beating up all the tecnicos – it never changes the match, and gets lost in the fifteen other things going on. But we’ll see how it plays out.

07/06 AAA TV Taping Results (Puebla)

Previous: 06/10, 06/17, 07/01

AAA TV (FRI) 07/06 Plaza de Toros El Relicario Puebla [superluchas]
1) Payaso Carrona, Payaso Miedo, Payaso Terror DQ Canibal, Chiva Rayada I, Explosivo
2) Jesse, Nygma, Polvo de Esterllas, Yuriko b Aero Star, Némesis AAA, Pegasso, Rey Cometa
3) Alfa, Fabi Apache, Gran Apache, Super Calo b Laredo Kid, Pimpinela Escarlata, Sexy Star, Super Fly
4) Head Hunter I, Ron Killings, X-Pac b Alberije, Latin Lover, Zorro
5) Mesias b Cibernetico [bull terrier]

The result from the MP/Sect match is missing. I’ll update later if/when turns it up.

Air Date
Mex: 07/15 – as TripleMania is airing.
US: 08/04

This is a tough positioned taping, because whatever they were going to do here, it couldn’t sell them any more ticket to TripleMania. This is airing at the same time. You gotta keep building for TV purposes, but you can’t do anything new, because few are going to know about it at the big show. So it looks like they decided to run the big angle on the Monterrey show, and then just kept things in place here.

The one surprise was Sabu running in during the main event, helping the Legion by putting Cibernetico’s second La Parka Jr. thru a table. I would presume this means he’s the mystery rudo. Haven’t seen it confirmed, but he’s definitely on the show with some role. I forget, Sabu’s already scheduled to be in the match. So still no idea who’s in the mystery spot, though the easy guess would be Abismo being put back in the slot.

I’ll add if details show up.

Update: AAA’s posted their recap. There’s no mention of the MP/Sect match either. Must’ve not happened. Not sure what the deal is. Not really complaining.

Mesias won the bull terrier match with a low blow that the ref missed.

Zorro wrestled in a neck collar, selling the piledrive from Monterrey. X-Pac beat Latin with his face slam.

Apache won with a martiente on Laredo Kid. Calo busted open Super Fly for good measure.

AAA lists the winning side on the segunda as “The Night Queens”.

Future Tapings
07/15 Triplemania
– 07/16 Leon (lineup should be out this week)
– 07/28 Tlaxaca
– some August ones I saw on AAA MEX TV but neglected to write down. (professional!)
